Tennessee Whiskey Tour | Thursday, June 21 | 11:00AM - 5:00PM | $140 per person
As the first state to pass a Prohibition law, Tennessee’s distilleries in the hills and hollers basically owned the whiskey market from 1838 until 1933, when the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution was finally passed and ratified. After more than eighty years of Post-Prohibition freedom, join us for a journey back in time – heck, some of these counties are still dry – as we visit three distillers, sample some of the finest old and new batch whiskey recipes in the nation, and enjoy some classic Nashville cuisine for lunch.
